Busta Rhymes finds it pretty telling that T.I. opted not to go up against him in a Verzuz battle.
After Tip expeditiously turned down the Brooklyn legend’s offer to get in the ring, Busta had a few words. In an Instagram video, he accepted Tip’s decision to back out but made sure to let him know that his fear was loud and clear.
“It’s okay to let people know that you backed down from this Verzuz offer,” Busta said. “It’s okay, Tip. You’ve ‘respectfully declined.’ I guess that’s the fancy way to say that you turned down this Verzuz battle. You want to talk about generational gap? That’s a very respectful way of not saying that you don’t really want to sit in the smoking section with me and that you actually just turned down the opportunity to do this Verzuz battle with me. It’s cool, Tip. You can say it, King of the South!”
